17 U.S.C. § 104A (b) Ownership of Restored Copyright. — A restored work vests initially in the author or initial rightholder of the work as determined by the law of the source country of the work.

Were they the original rights holder?

Looking at the registration it appears that they are successor in interest to the original copyright owner and registering on behalf of or as the successors-in-interest to the author. URAA does not explicitly prevent assignment, transfer or third party management of the restored copyright. Most works were registered by successors-in-interest to the original copyright owners, which was perfectly legal and proper as copyright continues to endure after the deaths of the original owners.
